The Delaunay Aldwych
In 2011 WFC completed a 20-week fit-out contract to form ‘The Delaunay’ Restaurant for Rex Restaurants in Aldwych, London.
The site was split into 2 floors – basement and ground, with services being taken 10 storeys up through the core of the building. All front of house areas were sited on ground floor level, including reception and cloakrooms, main bar area, private dining rooms, front of house toilets, further prep kitchens, and, of course, the main restaurant space. The basement comprised the main kitchen areas and staff accommodation.
‘The Counter’ offers a take-away service and is also situated on the ground floor. With an independent entrance from Aldwych, The Counter offers its own relaxed all day eating service.
One of the most striking features of the restaurant is the chequerboard marble floor below the feature ceilings, set against the background of dark stained oak wall panelling embellished with aged bronze metalwork and gold leaf detailing.
WFC was proud to have won the NAS Design Partnership Award 2012 for our collaboration on The Delaunay with David Collins Studio.
The success of this project led to further contracts with Rex Restaurants – Zedel Brasserie in Piccadilly and Colbert in Sloane Square.
